agencies to share information? >> well, there has always been in washington this intramural kind of feeling of possessiveness about information that is developed within an agency by its sources and so there is a tendency to stove pipe, to hoard information, and not to share it. and that has to be overcome. and as we said five years ago, it has to be overcome by presidential leadership, who requires that it be done, to overcome this obstinate tendency in our government agencies to hoard information. >> the 9/11 commission in december of 2005 gave its final support and specifically talked about prescreening passengers before they board the airline. and you gave this country, you gave the grade of an f. here is what the commission said. few improvements have been made to the existing passenger screening sim stins right after 9/11. that was back in 2005. what grade would you give the obama administration today after learning of this incident? >> well, again, it is one incident, we're still finding out facts. but clearly we have not seen implemented with the alacrity that we would have wished to

the pressure of philip randolph and the march on washington that they gave in. you have a situation where if big business and republicans had their way you would have no price controls, no 40 hour week because they were against paying overtime, no hiring of minorities, you would have had a situation that makes the day's republicans look somewhat better. it was only because of extra parliamentary pressure like philip randolph's threat to move on washington that these things were finally changed. a threat which the communist party opposed because they were going after the war effort. in today's terms it is difficult to understand how reactionary much of the country was and what a difficult time roosevelt had and his own reluctance in many instances to do what in retrospect what would have been done. this brings me briefly to the holocaust where i have long documentation in the book because for the most part we're documenting things that aren't there. the p.m. did not say anything about holocaust until november of 1940 to when the rabbi made a famous speech in which he told the country this

on the memorials and monuments in washington, d.c. >> world war ii began in 1939, when germany invaded poland. but the united states didn't get involved until two years later, when japan sneak-attacked our navy at pearl harbor. it took four long years before the allies finally won. the national world war ii memorial is a tribute to the heroism of that time. it's a memorial on a scale that matches america's massive commitment. 16 million men and women served in our military during wwii. it's located right at the heart of the national mall, between the washington monument and the lincoln memorial. however, the memorial didn't open until 2004 - almost 60 years after the war ended. vietnam and korea both had monuments earlier, even though those wars were fought after world war ii. >> why wasn't there a wwii memorial earlier? that was a generation who said "i'm just doing my job. i don't need any commemoration in essence for just doing my job." >> the memorial has many parts. at the center, there's a pool with a huge fountain. the architects wanted this to be a joyful symbol of the allies' victory
